DIY Typographic String Art
Man Made DIY, is one of my favourite craft/DIY blog and they posted this tutorial. Which I am in love with! Its a very modern twist on the popular 7os trend of string art. It’s very simple to make, and looks amazing! Chris made this by projecting the words onto a piece of painted plywood and tracing it.

Inspiration: Origami Cranes | It is said that when one folds 1000 origami paper cranes they are granted a wish. Source Source Source Source Source Here’s a link to a great video showing you how to fold a crane. Stuffed Fabric Turtles (with pattern pieces) We were shopping around, down in Florida, after we went to the zoo several weeks ago (yes, in Jacksonville…..some of you asked)……..and we stopped by a Pottery Barn Kids store. I’m a window shopper. Well, and an inspiration-seeker shopper. I love walking around and daring myself to find something I want to make. Want to go shopping with me? I might drive you crazy. Then you and my husband will have something in common. While we were there…..we saw some cute little stuffed turtles. So I snapped a picture with my phone, and I decided to try and figure it out at home. So, here’s my version…..a bit different, but just as sweet. They are soft and plump and are perfect for little hands. …..and the tail may be my favorite part. After making one, you better let your turtle explore outside. Would you like to make your own? Turtle pattern pieces found here. Cut out all of your turtle pieces, in whatever fabric and color choices you want. Then sew each piece closed, about a 1/4 inch from the end. Enjoy.

Fold a heart page marker I hope you’ll whip up some heart page markers to share with those around you. It’s simply too easy not to make. Here’s how: Use a square piece of paper. Fold in half. Crease. This origami model is simple but versatile because it’s also able to become a 4-leaf clover or a flower by grouping 4 together, and hide a small item (like a ring) in front or even have it stand on its own by making an easel with the back flap.

dreamcatchers I’m really diggin the whole hippy thing. And while Craig is quick to correct me on the fact that dream catchers are not hippy-ish, I still think of them that way. Natural, care free, simple. All things I relate to those old hippies. hah. The point of a dream catcher is to weed out bad dreams. This is not a traditional Native- American dream catcher. What I used: Embroidery Hoop Yarn (or twine, hemp… whatever you have on hand) Beads Feathers Thread Felt Hot Glue Gun Want to make one too?? Grab your embroidery hoop, leave it as is, or wrap it up like I did. Take your webbing yarn and form a loop at the top, this will be where you dreamcatcher hangs from. The webbing is the same stitch through out. Pull tight and repeat. For your second (and every other row), use the same stitch, but instead of going over the hoop, go through the string: Keep going until the hole in the middle is to your liking. Now you can tie extra string where ever you’d like, some tie it to the actual hoop. His view:

Personnages en papier et fil de fer armé - - les tutos de Pamina Voilà un orchestre bien fragile, mais très amusant à faire, qu'on peut fabriquer à peu de frais et en décliner les formes et thèmes à l'infini. L'idée m'est venue en m'offrant ce petit livre , qui fourmille d'idées les plus originales les unes que les autres. En tant que musicienne, je me suis attardée sur ce thème. Je suppose que je n'ai pas le droit de vous donner les gabarits des musiciens, mais la chanteuse, je l'ai inventée, donc j'ai choisi de vous en donner le patron, il est ici imprimable en pdf : personnage papier kraft armé Dans le livre, on dit que le rouleau de ficelle kraft est facile à trouver dans les jardineries. J'ai donc cogité que je pouvais le faire moi-même, donc vous aussi . Prévoyez une pince coupante et une pince normale. Une fois que vous avez la forme voulue, collez-la sur son support : vieilles revues jaunies, partitions, vieilles cartes routières etc... Découpez touit le tour du sujet en gardant l'intérieur bien sûr.

Book Page Corner Heart Origami Bookmark This is another heart tutorial. Is the 'book page' trend over yet? I sure hope not, because I just love the look of this corner bookmark folded from a book page. When I was a kid, my parents bought me an origami book (from Thailand, all in Thai!). I still see origami instructions out there that completely confuse me. I used a book page for this but origami paper would make awesome book marks also.
